Gable Tostee, who was cleared of the murder and manslaughter of Kiwi tourist Warriena Wright after their Tinder date ended in her falling 14 floors to her death, posted on a blog before his recent trial.
The incident took place at the notorious dirty dater’s Surfer’s Paradise apartment in Queensland back in August 2014.
An audio recording from the night was thought to allude to Tostee being guilty.
In the recording, he was heard saying:
You’re lucky I haven’t chucked you off my balcony you goddamned psycho bitch. If you try to pull anything, I’ll knock you out, I’ll knock you the fuck out, do you understand?
I’m pretty sure publishing a blog filled with detailed information about the trial before it has taken place is contempt of court, but I guess that’s the least of this guy’s worries.
The bizarre blog post was posted defending his actions, which included an explanation for why he started recording a conversation with Warriena.
In the post he wrote that he ‘regularly made audio recordings of my drunk nights on the town in case something happened’ – worrying that he almost expected something bad to happen.
In a post on the body building forum bodyspace.com, he wrote:
I kept them for myself but didn’t need to listen to them 99 per cent of the time. It’s so easy to do using a smartphone and comes at such a small cost, and sometimes the recordings have been invaluable.
He described the night in detail. saying that Warriena became increasingly aggressive:
I’m not sure whether she found it amusing but it was getting out of hand. She kept hitting me, taunting me, throwing my stuff around and trashing my apartment.
The convicted fraudster had been banned from many nightclubs on the Gold Coast for being ‘creepy’ to women, as well as leading police on a dangerous drunk car chase.

The long blog post included photos of his apartment, and his regular criticism of the media’s need for a villain and how he was the perfect choice.
Gable also attempted to explain his cameras, recordings, criminal history, and the reason why he left the scene instead of going to the police.
